Child Catcher
Andrew Bridge’s bestselling memoir, Hope’s Boy, tells the story of his survival after being taken from his mentally ill mother and left to foster care. He was first confined at one of our country’s most notorious children’s institutions, MacLaren Hall. Now, he chronicles his role in the longest-running, most bitterly fought mental health lawsuit in American history. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Bridge joined the small team of civil rights lawyers representing the children of the Eufaula Adolescent Center, a violent and secretive institution in the rural South, against the State of Alabama. His work has been featured in The NY Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Showtime, The Observer, The CBS Early Show, NBC Nightly News, Time Magazine, PBS, Psychology Today, NPR, and Observer Magazine.
